Mardaani  Hindi Movie Review



Ratings:3/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
Mardaani is not a perfect film, but it's better than many of the blockbusters Bollywood churns out regularly. It's a well-made commercial Hindi film - reasonably short and minus songs - that's trying to say something. For that I'm going with three out of five. Whatever else, you won't be bored.

MARDAANI grabs your attention from the commencement and never relents. Padding the proceedings with several intense episodes, MARDAANI eventually becomes the good versus evil fight as the protagonist makes her way to the baddie behind the baddies. On the whole, MARDAANI is relevant, powerful and inspiring with a top notch performance by Rani Mukerji. Worth a watch!

While there is nothing in the plot that you haven't seen before, it is still watchable for the superb performance of Rani. This movie could have continuous recall had the pace been racier. And if you could also buy into the emotional tracks between Shivani and her husband, her niece or her ward. Also, Rani is the only member of the cast with star value. The rest of the actors, including the English-speaking young goon, are inconsequential.

On the whole, Mardaani is too ordinary a film for an emotional and disturbing issue like s** trafficking. It leaves the viewer unaffected and fails to inspire the women to revolt, which is what the film ought to have done. At the box-office, it will not be able to make its mark. A section of the evolved and women audience will like it for the intention behind the film but that won’t be enough for the film to succeed at the ticket windows.

What it really is though but a middling action thriller engaging a cat-and-mouse game between a shrewd crime branch officer (who happens to be a woman) and a demented young man running a vast human trafficking business. Mardaani is a bland version of Liam Neeson's Taken. If only the script weighed more in intensity of thoughts than stagy heroics and simplistic resolutions, it could do a lot more for women in the film industry if not society in general.

 Mardaani is more in the nature of a police procedural drama than a stunt film about a comic strip cop in which exploding cars and pummeled bodies are flung about in the air like a whole lot of pillows. Because Shivani Shivaji Roy is not your average action ‘hero’, she might not appeal to Dabangg junkies. But for everyone else, Mardaani could be well worth a trip to the multiplex.

After the interval, the filmmakers throw all restraint to the wind. Shivani is pushed into becoming a one-woman squad, turning into the male version of the movie cop that’s only right for comic-book treatment in bad 80s’ reboots. Cue swelling background music-and- rousing-songs, and we see Rani Mukerji lit up from the back, walking slo mo down a dingy corridor. That’s called curdling credibility.

Mardaani is a crime drama, which is packed with action and thrills. Rani Mukerji plays a tough cop who does her job with her heart and mind. She puts in her blood and sweat to bust a human-trafficking racket. The show she puts together on the big screen is simply awesome!Book your tickets for Mardaani and watch Rani Mukherji in action. She will blow your mind!

Mardaani is a movie that despite an unimaginative plot and predictable narrative engrosses you in its fabric. Rani Mukerji is pitch perfect in the role of a super-cop that is rightly hued, far from the floss and swagger of Chulbul Pandey and Singham. She is real, gritty and every bit brilliant. Though the film’s climax loses itself in melodrama, this is a film that has its heart in the right place and tells a pertinent story at a time when it must be heard.

Mardaani is a fair attempt to address an important issue of child trafficking.  There are no unnecessary twists and turns, convoluted flashbacks or, worse, forced item numbers in the end. Simple, straight screenplay. Mardaani is a more commercial, less disturbing version of Nagesh Kukunoor’s Lakshmi. The film could be too simplistic for many, but doesn’t offend you or underestimate your IQ. Watch it once. It won’t hurt.

Mardaani is not in the same league as ‘Kahaani’ or ‘English Vinglish’, but it still deserves applause for attempting to portray a movie minus Bollywood's trademark frills. Even when the inspiring story crumbles towards the end with unnecessary melodrama and a corny monologue, Rani flaunts her finest act. Yet, this isn’t at par with ‘Kahaani’ or ‘English Vinglish’, only because writer Gopi Puthran reduces ‘Mardaani’ into an unimaginative mess by trafficking in the usual tropes of supercops and psychotic baddies without giving the tale a wicked twist.

  10. MARDAANI:
    In all those hopeless commercial biggies, a small promise of change! [2.5/5]

    Pradeep Sarkar’s MARDAANI is a small small film. Small neither because of its crispy, edgy & cross 114 minutes of total duration nor because it lacks a male superstar must for the most. Could be a disappointment because of the fact that it comes from one of the biggest film production houses in Bollywood! Well, it is small by and large because it did have the opportunity of going miles with an uncompromising burning issue in hand but sadly doesn’t take the required flight and succumb to being a hardcore commercial film. Still, better! Much much better than those nonsensical comedies, meaningless action entertainers and male-dominant plots. Credit goes to the earnest performance by Rani Mukerji and the issue based plot craving for immediate attention from allover.

    Child sex trafficking is one of the fastest growing illegal, inhuman & heartless criminal practice on every corners of the globe. And India is apparently the biggest hub for abducting and pushing victims of 12 years & more into the darkest pit of crime known as sex slavery. MARDAANI is all about one fearless cop trying to bust one such syndicate all alone with best of efforts, toughest of anger and strongest of determination. Shivani Shivaji Roy [played by Rani Mukerji] is a street smart tough cop who can mouth foul words without having any agitation or discomfort especially when on duty and also doesn’t mind cooking for her family even if in uniform. She is the new hero in Bollywood who is ready all the time to fight back the bad & the ugly, even in her sleep.

    Problem with MARDAANI is that it never takes itself rightly. Where it could actually take the leap, it decides to lie back and get easy with the comforts of a commercial cinema. For instance, how could a missing girl’s information not alarm our sincere cop about the possibility of her being a victim of human trafficking? And where is the gravity of the issue if it requires a personal angle to charge up our main protagonist? Thankfully, the film doesn’t bother to feed you pointless added details like the back-story of main lead, dramatic outbursts in her professional life, emotional quotients responsible to shape up her stature the way she is today and so many others. Even cinematically, you will not find anything too multifaceted. It’s simple, straightforward and very much existent. So, do not expect a cat & mouse chase with high octane action sequences. Though the climax is quite unimaginative and a little dramatic!

    Performances are subtle and restrained enough to give you a realistic feel. Rani as Shivani is in form. From her first in RAJA KI AAYEGI BAARAAT to this, her acts of resentment, resistance & revolt have always been appreciated. She can be fragile at one time and ferocious at the very next. Here too, she sets the screen on fire. Her character definitely deserves another chance with better hand at script and plot. Shivani Shivaji Rao could be a serious contest to all the SINGHAMs & DABANGGs! Tahir Raj Bhasin as the cool, calm & composed mastermind of the trafficking syndicate impresses with his ease with acting for camera. Veteran actress Mona Ambegaonkar surprises or rather shocks you in her excitingly vivacious yet vindictive shade of character. Why on earth we don’t see her more often on big screen?

    Overall, it is a film that deserved better and more evolved hand at direction; the plot & the writing sure had it in glances & glimpses. Watch it for an unexpected change it promises to bring to Hindi commercial cinema but don’t anticipate whatever you have been praising till the very last entry in the 100 Cr club. It’s better; in content and in intend both! [2.5/5]

  15. Mardaani has a suitably dark opening, retains its grimness throughout, and keeps developments on the right side of credibility for as long as possible. MARDAANI is perfect balance between logic and emotion & is smart enough to engage your intelligence and dramatic enough to tug at your heart strings.

  17. One of the cool movies of the year. No-nonsense and freaking pacy. I felt like I was watching 'Taken' in bollywood version. Liked it for the banter between the protagonist and her nemesis. - Himanshu
